t the onset of the
County Commis-
sioner's meeting,
Commissioner Lamb reit-
erated the board's rule
that it will only action
items that are on the
agenda. The public must
be afforded the opportu-
nity to participate in and


contribute to the process
of operating Dixie Coun-

reduce the side setbacks
on his property in Suwan-
nee Shores so that he and
his neighbor can build a.
boathouse was granted.
A petition by Franklin

second. Although
the couple owns-
all 4 lots at the
end of the road,

luctant to give up
the right of ac-
cess to the creek.

A Temporary Use permit
was granted to allow car
sales next to the NAPA
store in Old Town from
June 16th-20th, 2008.

Jayne Moraski from the
North Florida Economic
Development Partnership
requested funds in the
amount of $784, being 5 .
cents per capital, as Dixie


County's contribution to
the 14 county coalition to
finance, along with State'
grants, 2 projects in the
North Central Region sit-
uated in Suwannee and
Columbia counties. Ad
valorem revenues will be
divided between the 14
partners based on their
contributions. This initia-
tive was started by Gov.
Bush in 2003.

Members of the Tri-
County Marine Corp
League and Auxiliary
1018, having already ac-
quired a building no
longer of use to a local
church, asked the board
for use of county proper-
ty to site the building on
as their league headquar-
ters. they currently meet
at DAV Hall near Cross
City Airport. The 'Old
Jail' within the Cross
City city limits was se-


elected, being recently
cleared, within 2 blocks of
the new building, and
close to the 'Old Jail'
which the League plans
to convert into a long
awaited museum of local
history Traditionally,
these leagues offer a bar
for the use of members
which generates much
needed revenue for the
organization, the board
was assured that no bar
will be present at this lo-
cation. Currently the 'Old
Jail' is being used for
state mandated but un-
funded storage of County
documents. Members of
the Marine Corp League
have amassed a quantity
of artifacts that are cur-
rently housed in their
homes until a more per-
manent venue becomes
available.

Martinez
Statement On Oil
Production Tax

U.S. Senator Mel Mar-
tinez (R-FL) today op-
posed efforts to impose a
new tax on the develop-
ment of domestic oil re-
sources citing concerns
related to driving the
price of gasoline even
higher.

According to the non-
partisan Congressional
Research Service, the tax
proposed in the Senate
today would cut oil pro-
duction by 149 million
barrels a year and have
'several adverse econom-
ic effects.'

"Instead of doing things
that raise the cost of oil,
we need to do more to
bring down the price of
crude including develop-
ing domestic resources
like ANWR and the 8
million acres we've
opened in the Gulf. We
need to increase our do-
mestic refinery capaci-
ty"

The latest from New Zealand

We need to realize that all-the brilliant new innova-
tions (could there even be such a thing as an "old innova-
tion"?) do not come from California. The latest of these
comes from New Zealand. (There actually is an "Old
Zealand," but I won't bother to elaborate since it has noth-
ing to do with our subject.)
New Zealand has a problem. Actually, it probably
doesn't, but the environmentalists have convinced their
government that they do, so they've done something about
it. And let's at least give them credit for this, as they are
confronting their pseudo-problem on their own and not
proposing to raise our taxes to handle the undertaking.
The problem? Bovine flatulence. If you don't know
what that is, let me just explain that I worked at two area
radio stations that were in close proximity to cow pastures,
and when the wind was coming from their direction, there
could be little doubt as to what constituted bovine flatu-
lence.
New Zealand appears'to have an even more oppres-
sive problem, though for some reason they don't seem to
have noticed until quite recently It seems their livestock
(mostly cattle and sheep) account for 90 percent of the is-
land nation's methane production. Although New Zealand's
skies remain bright and clear on a sunny day, and the air is
refreshing to breathe in most locations, the government
seems to think that something needs to be done to correct
(or at least "off-set"--notice how popular that term has be-
come?) what has only recently been identified as a problem.
New Zealand's government's solution? Impose a
tax. Does that surprise you? Isn't that pretty much how lib-
erals here, there and everywhere want to solve what they
perceive as problems?
New Zealand's farmers and ranchers can be expect-
ed to start paying a "flatulence tax" on the volume of
methane gas their animals quite naturally emit into the at-
mosphere. The farmers and ranchers have responded by
sending parcels of animal manure to the legislators who
voted'for this new tax, but it seems unlikely that this will
cause the tax to be repealed. After all, what's an occasional
envelope of excrement on your doorstep compared to the
millions that can be taxed out of farmers' assets to atone
for the altogether natural behavior of their livestock?
New Zealand's scientific community hasn't let this
development pass unnoticed. They are working-"around ,
the clock" according to one source-to find more environ-
mentally friendly ways to feed the country's livestock and
fertilize the land that grows the grass that these beasts con-
sume to keep the cycle going. These include a vaccination
that will hopefully reduce the problem.
All right, but the methane has to go somewhere,
and I'd prefer that it go into the atmosphere, rather than
stay in the steaks.
The Kyoto Treaty, which New Zealand has signed,
along with most of the rest of the world, is demanding that
New Zealand reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 5.2
percent below 1990 levels in the next four years. Here's a
South Pacific nation consisting of two islands, and the Ky-
oto honchos are worried about greenhouse gas emissions,
90 percent of which are from livestock. And meanwhile, the
big polluters who have signed into Kyoto (China, for exam-
ple), ignore its policies and continue to put industrial (as
opposed to agricultural) greenhouse gasses into the atmos-
phere in defiance of the Kyoto protocols.
Fortunately, the United States has been spared the
simultaneous stupidity of a President and a Congress
needed to ratify the Kyoto accord at any given time. Other-
wise, the Democrats might feel it necessary to replace the
donkey as their mascot, and certainly the Republicans
would want something besides the elephant for theirs.

Did you know that Europe will be muslim in our life-
times? What Hitler couldn't do with armies, Islam is
doing with the sword of immigration and the shield of
multiculturalism. Iran publicly threatens our ally Is-
rael, and our very existence. If we do not stop them
from obtaining nuclear weapons, Israel will be a ra-

ington will be, too. By then, it will be too late to save
The West, and civilization as we know it.

We have this one chance. The next man in the white

aggressive sins, such as violence and
cruelty and greed with all their tragic
effects, that too little attention is paid to
the passive sins, such as apathy and
laziness, which in the long run can have a
more devastating effect."


Eleanor Roosevelt


Now some whacko Texas prophet is predicting the end
of the world through a nuclear war that is scheduled
to begin on June 12. Apparently, his first prediction
was for 2006, but that (embarrassingly for-him) didn't
work out, so he extended his timeline. He's a complete
nut, but he may be onto something. I think he's
wrong on the method, though: the end of the western
world won't come in a blazing mushroom cloud, but in
a slow, steady drip of self-interest, apathy, laziness,
and defeatism. Will anybody even notice when the end
comes?

William Bernbach said that "...good doesn't drive out
evil. Evil doesn't drive out good. But the energetic dis-
places the passive." Our passivity may be the end of
us. The Lord knows that radical Islam is energetic.
It's breeding up armies of murderous fanatics faster
than the CIA can track them. Radical Islam is deadly
serious about passing on its culture to the hordes of
little muslim children that enter the EU every year.
Just today, our "ally in the War on Terror" Pakistan
dispatched a squad to tell the EU to reform their free-
dom of speech laws to forbid anything offensive to or
against Islam, and that "if such acts against Islam are
not controlled, more attacks on the EU diplomatic
missions abroad could not be ruled out." Nice folks,
those Pakistanis. A religion that makes death threats
over cartoons has some serious issues. But Islam
doesn't worry about "respecting other cultures," or


Dear Editor:

Please excuse the nostalgic render-
ing, but you see, as I write this, to-
day is June 6, 2008. that means
that 64 years ago today, about one
hundred thousand young Ameri-
cans were invading the beaches of
Normandy Some 3,000
died that bloody, bloody
day. I've been told that
the ocean was red. These
boys were this country's
cream of the crop, the
best we had to offer and
they did their job su- W
perbly Now 64 years lat-
er, our World War II he-
roes--the ones that came
home--are dying at a rate
of about 1,000 a day Not
many are left. June 6,
1944 was a magnanimous day in
the history of the entire world and
yet, as far as I know, in our own
USA, there are no parades, no
speeches, no commemorations.

But I didn't want to talk about our
soldiers today or for that matter,
the lack of parades; although these
gnarly old veterans with their
paunch bellies and their grey hair
certainly deserve better prose than
I can offer. I just want to tip my
hat to the Normans. Remember
when Jacques Chirac was the pres-
ident of France and they seemed to

ed something, France was against


One more quote to get you think-
ing, from Obama's website (this
post, along with hundreds more
just like it, have been posted on the
official site since March...but were
brought to national attention by a
conservative blog and are being re-
moved like lightning now...you can
still find them at littlegreenfoot-
balls.com/weblog):


"Welcome to Jemaah Islamiyah! My
name is Fatima, and I'm thrilled to be supporting
Barack Obama for President. For now, we have a man
of integrity, who will fight for the rights of Muslims
everywhere. Allah has blessed us with a man who will
stand up to the neoconservatives and the racist zion-
ists. I believe with all my heart that Barack Obama ,
will stop the American occupation of Iraq. No longer
will American soldiers be able to kill our women and
children with impunity

Mr. Obama will also talk to Iran's leader Mahmoud
Amadinejad, whom the current chimp in the White
House has treated so badly. I mean why should Ameri-
can and Israel be able to have nukes but not Iran?
(OMG! Shall I list the reasons? --Ed) That is very un-
fair. Obama will right that wrong.

Furthermore, Senator Obama will take a much more
rational approach in the Middle East. No longer will
that zionist entity, whose name I hate to even write be
able to oppress our Palestinian brothers and sisters
with impunity If anyone can stop the illegal occupa-
tion of Palestinian lands, I know it is Barack Obama!"

Gee, something tells me that endorsement won't make
it to the campaign commercial.

that it remained on the site for two months without be-

ing .that time, when the rest of
France seemed down on us so bad
. that the folks of Normandy hand-
made little gifts for every Ameri-
can serviceman that had been in
the Normandy theatre on D-Day
These gifts were distributed at gala
events and celebrations all over
this country They gave my broth-
er one in a ceremony in
Gainesville. He was a young navy
lieutenant serving on an LST. He
was so very appreciative of the gift
and the acknowledgment. I, of
course, was proud too and I put a
mental star somewhere around the
name "Norman."


Not to let it go with gifts, the Nor-
man people have built a Normandy
invasion museum. It commemo-
rates the sacrifices made and brav-
ery shown by the Americans,
British Canadians and Free French
forces as they stormed Omaha,
Utah, Sword Jueno arid Gold beach-
es; the first step in taking France
back from the dreaded hun. I'm
told that this museum is the
biggest and best of its kind in the
world. Also, there is now a special
exhibit in the museum. It honors
the United States and the horror
that was suffered in New York on
September 11th. So, regardless of
what they so or do in Paris these
days, it's my opinion that the Nor-
mans love us and they appreciate
what was done for them so many
years ago. I think that they'll nev-
er forget it and because of that and
on this very special anniversary
day, I look across the Atlantic and
offer my salute to the wonderful
folks of Normandy, France.

78 year old Angel Torres was

Connecticut with his newly pur-
chased milk when a car that seemed to be playing a
game of chase with another car, mowed him down.
The car that hit him and' its "playmate" didn't stop,
but sped around a corner and away. Mr. Torres lay
paralyzed and bleeding in the street as commuters
went by on their way to work and as bystanders stood
on the sidewalk and gawked at his broken body At
least four of them had the decency to call 911, but no-
body could be bothered to walk out into the street to
try to stop traffic, or to cover the old man with a jack-

Deputies found in the ve-
hicle Ecstasy Pills,

$200,000 bond.


On Saturday, June 7, at
11:00 P.M. Mr. James
Smith, of Cross City, had
just returned from a fish-
ing trip with his grand-
son. He parked his truck
and boat in his front yard,
and they began to unload
supplies from the boat and
take them to his storage
building in his back yard.

On their second trip they
were approached by a
black male riding a small
bicycle. The man was
wearing a black shirt,
black pants, and appeared
to be wearing a partial ski
mask, which concealed
the majority of his face.
The man brandished a
small, .22 caliber revolver
and demanded Mr.
Smith's wallet, saying that
he would shoot him if he
didn't comply

Mr. Smith was carrying a
gaff at the time, and he
pointed it at the man, and
said "No." He then jabbed
at the suspect with the
gaff's hook, striking him
in the arm that was hold-
ing the gun. The revolver
discharged and the sus-


pect then fled the scene.
When Mr. Davis' grand-
son, age 8, heard the gun
fire, he ran into the house
to tell his grandmother.

No footprints or tire im-
prints were recovered
from the scene, as the
roadway was paved. The
gaff was analyzed for evi-
dence.

Officers searched the
area around the house,
looking for the suspect.
They encountered a black
male matching the de-
scription, he was riding a
small black bicycle. When
the subject realized that
he was being followed, he
sped up and proceeded to
evade the officers. The. of-
ficers then canvassed the
entire housing area where
-the suspect was lost. How-
ever, neither he, nor his
bicycle were recovered.

Mr. Smith advised the of-
ficers that the suspect ap-
peared to be about 5' 6"
tall, and weighed about
150 Lbs.

And he bowed his head to Jesus

And he only loved one woman

He said hiks greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness

(Raised on the ways and gentle kindness)
(Of a small town Southern man)
Callous hands told the story
For this small town Southern man
He gave it all to keep it all together
And keep his family on his land
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
Made it hard just to walk and stand
You can break the back
But you can't break the spirit
Of a small town Southern man
Finally death came calling'
For this small town Southern man
He said it's alright 'cause I see angels
And they got me by the hand
Don't you cry, and don't you worry
I'm blessed, and I know I am

Fist, let me apolo-
gize for not having the in-
formation about digital
audio file converters
ready, as promised in last
weeks issue, in time for
this week. I have been
checking several of the
free ones out, and have
found them too compli-
cated for me to recom-
mend. I have found 'a few
that work, but their inter-
face is poor. As soon as I
find one that is reliable,
easy to use, and free, I
will be sure to let y'all
know.

This week I am going to
talk about whether you
should leave your com-
puter turned on 24/7, or
shut it sown when not in
use. Let me tell you, in
advance, that I can unfor-
tunately not give you a
straight answer on this
matter. I will, however, do
my best to inform you of
the pros and cons of both
sides of the matter.

If you turn your comput-
er off when you aren't us-
ing it there are several
things you should consid-
er. First, many of your
antivirus scans, and vari-
ous other maintenance
programs, are generally
set up to run in the wee
hours of the morning,
when you are (or should
be) asleep. If your com-
puter is off, then the
scans will not be run.


Redneck Tech

dilemma


Second, when you turn
your computer off, it
cools down, turning it on
causes it to heat back up.
This causes contraction,
and expansion of various
components in your com-
puter, which can lead to
stress cracks in solder
joints, or even cause com-
ponents to "creep" out of
Their sockets over an ex-
tended period of time.
Powering your computer
on also subjects your
computer to voltage
spikes, which, although
they are expected and de-
vices are in place to com-
pensate for them, can be
hazardous to your sys-
tem. On the other hand,
turning your system off
could reduce wear and
tear on bearings in your
hard disk drives and cool-
ing fans, as well as save
some electricity

If you are one of those
people who leaves your
computer on all of the
time, you should consider
the following. While your
computer is running the
cooling fans are in nearly
constant operation. This
draws dust into your
computers case, poten-
tially reducing its cooling
efficiency Hard disk dri-
ves will be running more,
and thereby causing
more wear on their bear-
ings. Some will argue
that your hard disks will


'last longer if you leave
them on all the time, as
they will maintain them-
selves at their optimum
operating temperature
and RPM, instead of fre-
quently cooling down,
warming up, spinning
down, and spinning up. If
you do decide to leave
your computer on con-
stantly, you should re-
member to reboot your
computer at least once
per week, as this allows
your computer to release
some resources that may
have been tied up by er-
rors or changes to your
system.

I, personally, leave my
computer running all of
the time. I have not expe-
rienced any problems
with any of my comput-
ers that I can attribute to
leaving it on constantly
In my opinion, it is best
to leave your computer
running. However, if you
are leaving for a a few
days or more, then by all
means turn it off! It is
also pretty much univer-
sally accepted that it is
best to turn your monitor
off when not in use. Pow-
ering off your monitor
saves a lot of electricity,
and prevents "burn in".
Burn in doesn't really
happen very much any
more,, as monitors have
become more advanced,
and also due to the com-
mon practice of using
screen savers. Most moni-
tors now will automati-
cally go to sleep when
they are not in use, this is
fine.

That's all I have right now.
I'll see you next week!

State Representative WILL S. KENDRICK
2008 LEGISLATIVE SESSION UPDATE
COMMITTEES: Environment & Natural Resources Council Policy & Budget Council
Committee on Conservation & State Lands (Chair) Committee on K-12
$66.2 Billion Budget- Restoring Florida's Economy
Understanding the tough realities of our state and national economic picture, we made reductions that were
necessary to balance our budget responsibly while making investments in programs and services that will
revitalize and grow our economy. $22 Million was allocated for economic development tools while $36.8 mil-
hon was invested in infrastructure improvements necessary to bring new businesses to the State.


This year's Legislative Session produced a
vision of change in education. With budget
reductions impacting every decision, the
Florida House placed priorities first and we
continued our longstanding commitment to
education. During Session, I supported legis-
lation to revise how high schools are awarded
school grades.


Instead of solely using FCAT scores, one-half
of the grade will now be based on a mix of
other indicators of student success. In addi-
tion, I supported efforts to create a world-class
curriculum to improve the rigor and relevance.
of our schools. We must prepare our students
to reach higher.in the global marketplace by
helping them to reach higher in the classroom.

HB623 School Food Service Program:
This year I sponsored and the Legislature
passed this bill which will provide breakfast to
middle and high schools beginning the 2010
school year. Documented studies have shown
that starting the day with breakfast has a
direct impact on attention spans, a decrease in
discipline issues, absenteeism, and tardiness.
This legislation will make Florida a leading
State in promoting the well-being of our chil-
dren and provide a national model to be used
throughout the country.
We addressed and provided for the collab-
orative effort between community colleges
and high schools to administer college readi-
ness assessments and provide remediation
before graduation.

Fiscally Constrained Counties
Amendment 1 passed overwhelmingly by voters in January.
This culminated in historic property tax reform in the State of
Florida. The Legislature has allocated $10 million to offset the
impact of the property tax reductions to local governments. The
estimated distribution will be based on documentation each coun-
ty submits to the Department of Revenue in November, 2008.
Other fully funded projects for rural counties include:
Solid Waste Grants SCRAP and SCOP
Payment in Lieu of Taxes

Public Safety
The safety and security of the pubic is a fundamental role of
government and the Legislature spent a great deal of time work-
ing to maintain public safety dollars and ensure the security of
our citizens.


Dear Friends:
This newsletter marks the end of my fourth and final term in the Florida House of Representatives. I am proud of
the accomplishments that have been achieved on behalf of the constituents of District 10.
As you are aware, our State is enduring an economic slowdown and the results of that are no clearer than the
struggle we as a legislative body faced this year to fund the needs and services that you expect from your elected
officials.
I am proud that we were able to secure critical funding in areas that are important to District 10. Some of those
dollars include:
Direct Aid to Libraries: ----------------------------- $26.7 million
Road resurfacing: ------------------------------------ $38.5 million
Prison work camps and annex: -------------------- $25.79 inillion
Parks -----------------------------------$ 1.63 million
We made the decision to prioritize healthcare spending and committed the funds to provide for the health and
welfare of the people of Florida. $23.4 billion was allocated to provide the healtheare needs of our most vulnerable
citizens, our children and seniors. Services such as Children's Medical Services, Hospice Services, and Healthy
Families Funding were not eliminated.
We have continued to place a high priority on making sure our children receive a world-class education. Despite
'historic budget shortfalls, the Education budget is only 2.5% less than last year. We worked hard to ensure that
more dollars are spent inll ie classroom, that the budget impact on students is minimized, and continue to reward
those tdliints who have excelled are earned the Florida Brighl Futures award by fully funding the award.
I want to thank you for allowing me to serve you in the Florida House of Representatives. It has been a privilege
and honor to represent you for the past eight years., .....
Ii Your Service,

Will S. Kendrick
State lRepresentative
louse D)istrict 0o


Funds allocated for District 10 Include:
Franklin County: 288 bed work camp $9.56 million
Columbia County: 322 bed annex $6.41 million
Dixie County: 432 bed work camp $9.82 million
In this tight budget year, the Florida House focused on funding the
core functions of the courts, prisons, and law enforcement without hav-
ing to resort to early release of dangerous criminals into our neighbor-
hoods and communities.
Hunter Safety Course Requirements:
I sponsored legislation this year that would eliminate thefirearms
requirement for obtaining a hunting license for.military personnel with
an active ID card.
Pest Control Compact:
I sponsored HB 197 to codify Florida's participation in the Interstate
Pest Control Compact which was organized to provide funding
resources to states that may not have the necessary capital to respond to
a new pest outbreak posing a threat to agriculture.

"Public dollars buy public lands for public use"
I had the privilege of being given a key role in steering a
direction for a successor program to continue and guide
Florida Forever into the future. This program is the vehicle
which acquires and preserves public lands, including wet-
lands, historic sites, parks, and public recreational facilities,
restores damaged environmental systems and provide water
resource protection. It is the largest land acquisition and man-
agement,program if its kind The Legislature has fully funded
the successor program at $300 million next year and has con-
tunued its existence
until 2020. This pro-
gram will allow us
to become better
stewards of our nat-
ural resources for
future generations.

Hi, my name is "Jena
Bridge Dog". My owner
must not have thought I
was worth keeping and
left me in the woods
around 2006. I had a col-
lar; but when my owner
was asked about it, he
said someone must have
put "his" collar on me
because "he" didn't own
me. Of course when I
saw his truck, I always
ran right over to it and
circled it; but he just
went right by

Lots of people tried to
catch me; but I was pret-
ty quick and they could-
n't get near. So many of
them really got to know
me that they would bring
food for me and after
awhile I would recognize
the friendly cars and
trucks and enjoy the
meals that were offered
me.

They gave me a lot of
great names:
Harper...because it's
strong and rich.. .not like
a throwaway Sunny...be-
cause I am really a happy
fella Scooter...because I
do scoot when chased!
Track Star...because I
can run at least 24 mph
And of course "Bridge"
because that's where I've
been living for the past
two years.

It's hard to live like this.
A vehicle hit me once
and broke my hind leg.
A coon, or maybe anoth-
er dog, took a bite out of
my ear. A rattler got me-
and made my head swell
almost double. Plus I
was always being bitten
by fleas, ticks and mos-
quitoes as well as getting
a lot of worms, scrapes
and cuts.


On Friday, June 6th, the
Beta Sigma Phi sorority
hosted twenty-five of Dix-
ie County's princesses,
ages 7 through 12.

The event titled
"Princess in Training"
began with a short talk
and walk by Dixie Coun-
ty Princess, Miss Micah
Johnson. After en-
joying muffins and
juice the girls at-
tended the first of
four mini-schools.
Mrs. Julie Dees,
culinary instructor
from Branford
High School, covered
proper table setting and
some novice napkin fold-
ing. The next group
joined Mrs. Dot Hill for
rules on correspondence,
and cell phone etiquette.
The girls had fun making
get well cards for Mariah
Hamilton. The next
group joined Mrs.
Kathryn McInnis in the

I didn't like anyone to
touch me; but a kind lady
helped me after my
snakebite and I began
sleeping over at her
house. I finally let her
pet me after five months
but I am still a free spirit.

Last week a PAWS mem-
ber stopped to feed
"Harper," her name for
me, and I went over and
lay my head on her knee.
I just knew she would
rescue me. And she did.
Four different cars
stopped to see if I had
been hit by a car because
my rescuer was carrying
me. You see almost
everybody knows me by
now.

If you would adopt me, I
would make you a great
pet. I need a fenced in
yard. If you are not able
to adopt an animal right
now, maybe you could
help with a donation for
my medical care. PAWS
is not in the "rescue"
business; but just this
once, since I am so spe-
cial to the community,
my foster lady is willing
to take care of me until
the right owner comes
along. If you can help,
contact PAWS at 352-498-
7895. Ask for Nancy
Or send a donation to

kitchen, who practiced
measuring various com-
mon kitchen ingredients
and reading recipes. The
final group joined Mrs.
Carol West with laundry
do's and don'ts, where
the girls learned a neat
way to fold fitted sheets.

The group then gathered
for lunch of sand-
wiches, fruit and
homemade desserts.
Mrs. Gloria Gilbert
shared some tips on
grooming and attire.
The afternoon ended
with some excited
Princess planning for a
second class in the fall.
The sorority members
thank the parents and
grandparents who made
it possible for the girls to
attend and covered the
$15 fee. Each girl received
a prize and a booklet
with what she learned
from this fun-filled day.

NEW PROSPECT
BAPTIST NEWS

As we entered the sanctu-
ary Sunday morning, we
were greeted by an un-
usual but very inviting
sight. Looking toward
the pulpit, we were in ef-
fect viewing the beach,
sea, and horizon from a
vantage point on a tropi-
cal island, compliments
of the hard work of those
who had set things up for
this year's Vacation Bible
School theme, "Outrigger
Island." We really appre-
ciate the time and effort
of all those who are de-
voting themselves to the
success of this program
in behalf of all the chil-
'dren (and adults) who
desperately need God's
lessons for life in this day
and age. With God's lead-
ing, Bro. Billy delivered a
wonderful morning mes-
sage from Hebrews 2:3,
and Sunday evening ser-
vices, consisted of our


VBS getting off to a good
start, to run nightly
through Friday evening,
June 13th, which will
also be Family Night.

Remember this coming
Sunday, June 15th, the
day on which we honor
our fathers! On Monday,
June 16th, we will have
our monthly Pastor/Dea-
cons Meeting, followed by
our Church Business
Meeting on Wednesday
evening, June 18th.

Please remember to pray
for all those on the vari-
ous church prayer lists,
including our President
and military personnel.
The prayer lists are ex-
tensive, but nothing is
too large for God to han-
dle! Have a good week,
and remember, you're in-
vited to visit with us at
New Prospect anytime.
Invite someone to Sunday
School and church with
you, and may God bless
you.

Bob Hatch

finally hits the

Speed Limit

















On June 7th, 2008 Mr. Bob Hatch came to the home of
his sister Helen Locklear for a visit with his wife Lin-
da and got a surprise birthday party instead. The
whole family pitched in to show how much he is loved
by everyone. Not only was he turning 55, he had 55
family members attend his party

Everyone pitched in to supply great food and decora-
tions. There were all kinds of good eats from baked
ham to fresh yeast rolls. The cake was made by Eliza-
beth Locklear. His niece Kim brought her famous
broccoli salad. His sister Mary Jo Stutts brought deli-
cious Chicken and Dumplings. Renee Liles blessed
the food then everyone dug in.

After eating the kids played baseball while the adults
did a lot of talking and laughing of fond memories.

everyone left full and carrying plates of extra food for
their trip home.

From MUSEUM, page 1
, Seelt is anticipated that
this process may take
several years to complete
but, a long journey with
a single step.

Acreage purchased under
the EMS budget to site a
new EOC will now be
used for the new senior
center for which a State
Grant of $245,847 has
been approved. The facil-
ity will be a 4,200 sq. ft.
structure comprising a
lobby with reception cen-
ter, 4 private offices,
kitchen, dining room ca-
pacity 50, activity/meet-
ing room, bathrooms,


storage and
parking lot all
of which will
be handicap
accessible and
built to appro-
priate State


to customers. The partic-
ular particulate in ques-
tion has an acceptability
level of 60 ppm, and al-
though the latest test re-
vealed a level of 5 ppm,
the previous test, taken
before the plant was on-
line, showed 200 ppm.
The conclusion should be
that the water is of excel-
lent quality, but it may
take 9 months to prove
that to the satisfaction of
FDEP. So 900 letters are
being mailed out to cus-
tomers of the recreation-
al community It is inter-
esting that only 180 had

City Hall.

Jerry Prater, Veterans
Service Officer runs win-
dows 98 and can no
longer integrate with sys-
tems he needs. The board
will look into having him
updated.

Suwannee Water and
Sewer Manager, Tony
Johns, is experiencing
similar issues with State
water testing require-
ments as the Cross City
Water plant and others
have already seen.
Rolling annual averages
are compared with ac-
ceptable levels to deter-
mine whether the water
quality is low enough to
warrant an advisory
warning letter being sent


piy c ani.

The increase in fuel costs
is taking its toll on Emer-
gency Services. Tim
Alexander reported that
Dixie is losing a para-
medic, a resident of Lake
City, who is finding it too
costly to travel to Dixie to
work and has found em-
ployment closer to home
but for less money.

Hoyt 'Buddy' Lamb has
been appointed to sign
the necessary documents
required for the'transfer
of County property to
FLDEP for the construc-
tion of the prison annex.

A hearing is scheduled
on June 23 at 8:00 at the
County Commissioner's
Meeting Room to discuss
maintaining the .06 per
gallon gas tax on regular
and special fuels sold in
Dixie County.

The MOD rating is basi-

rating is calculated using
the previous 3 years ac-

translates into a saving

a saving next year and
will allow for more accu-

FWC to hold

supplemental
sales period
for alligator
hunt permits

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) will
hold a supplemental sales
period for people who
failed to get an alligator
hunt permit or those who
would like to return a per-
mit with the hope .of try-
ing to obtain another.
This additional sales peri-
od will help reduce any in-
conveniences caused by a
computer programming
glitch during the initial
sales period on Tuesday,
June 3.
At 10 that morning, ap-
proximately 4,800 alligator
hunt permits went on sale
on a first-come, first-
served basis. Shortly af-
ter the start time, the li-
censing system operated
by a third-party vendor,
Outdoor Central of Jeffer-
son City, Mo., experienced
problems handling the
high volume of applica-
tions. For some appli-
cants, the system either
failed to process the per-
mit requests or failed to
provide electronic confir-
mation to those who were
successful at obtaining a
permit. This computer
glitch resulted in confu-
sion and frustration for
-many applicants as they
tried to buy permits. Per-
sons who are unsure of
whether they have been
awarded a permit should
check their status online
by going to
MyFWC.com/gators and
clicking on "Check Your
Alligator Harvest Permit
Status."
A limited set of permits
will go on sale starting at
10 a.m. (EDT) Tuesday,
June 17 on a first-come,
first-serired basis through
the Total Licensing Sys-
tem. Outdoor Central's
management team identi-

BEDS AT RISK:

Delegation Letter asks the
Corps to address Florida's
concerns

WASHINGTON, D.C.-
U.S. Senator Bill Nelson
(D-Florida) and U.S. Con-
gressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) today led
the effort amongst mem-
bers of the Florida Con-
gressional Delegation to
halt the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers' Revised In-
terim Operations Plan:
(RIOP) so that Florida's
concerns can be ad-
dressed. At a meeting
with the Florida Congres-
sional Delegation, Nelson
and Boyd circulated a let-
ter expressing serious


fied and corrected the
glitch in its system, and
the next day the FWC held
a successful first-come,
first-served hunt process
with no troubles.
A listing of the minimum
number of permits that
will be available during
this supplemental sales
period, along with in-
structions on how to re-
turn unwanted permits
and more details about
this opportunity, will be
posted on the FWC's Alli-
gator Management Web
site at
MyFWC.com/gators. The
deadline to purchase a
permit during this supple-
mental sales period is
11:59 p.m. (EDT) June 23.
During this supplemental
sales period, people will
be allowed to purchase
only o!e permit, enabling
them to take two alliga-
tors. Anyone who has al-
ready been awarded a per-
mit will not be allowed to
apply during the supple-
mental sales period, un-
less they have already
contacted the FWC to re-
turn the previously
awarded permit. Persons
who applied on June 3 and
wish to apply during the
supplemental sales period
are encouraged to check
their permit status to en-
sure they do not have a
valid permit.
The date when customers
can purchase additional
permits, if any are avail-
able after the initial and
supplemental sales peri-
ods, has been postponed
from June 10 to June 24 at
10 a.m. (EDT). People can
apply for a permit at any
county tax collector's of-
fice, any retail outlet that
sells hunting licenses or
on the Internet at
www.wildlifelicense.com.
People can check the
availability of permits
during any sales period,
in real time, by going to
MyFWC.com/gators and
clicking "Check Alligator

ty."

that the historically low

RIOP would have on the

"The Corps plan is unac-

said Boyd. "Florida's con-
cerns with this water
plan are serious, justified,
and urgent. The Corps'
water plan must be put to
a halt so that we can de-
velop a responsible plan
that balances the needs of
\all of the users
along the
\Apalachicola-
\Chatta-
hoochee-
S.. Flint sys-
S '* ktem. It can
r" -\ .. '~be done,
S but this
"new water
plan is not it."

The Revised Interim Op-
erations Plan (RIOP) al-
lows for flows as low as
4,500 cubic feet per second
(cfs) and more storage re-
tention in upstream lakes
to the detriment of down-
stream users without any
consideration of demand
management along the


Apalachicola-Chatta-
hoochee-Flint (ACF) sys-
tem. The plan would be
in effect for the next five
years as the Corps
rewrites the water control
manuals for the ACF sys-
tem.

"This new water plan is
especially frustrating to
me because I see it as a
reward for Georgia's lack
of long term water plan-
ning," Boyd stated.
"Florida has been plan-
ning for our water needs
for the past 35 years,
while Georgia has failed
to do so amidst major de-
velopment in the state.
Georgia must recognize
their need to look further
down the road and devel-
op a plan for their contin-
ued growth and water
needs that does not crip-
ple their downstream
neighbors."

Last chance for


Photography Contest

DEP
CELEBRATES
FLORIDA'S
RIVERS MONTH
-Launch of contest allows
photographers to showcase
beauty of waterways-

TALLAHASSEE Gover-
nor Charlie Crist recently
signed a proclamation
honoring June as Florida
Rivers Month, recogniz-
ing the more than 50,000
miles of rivers and
streams throughout the
state. Florida's famed wa-
terways include the 310-
mile St. Johns River, one
of the only rivers in
North America flowing
north, as well as two des-
ignated National Wild &
Scenic Rivers, the Wekiva
and Loxahatchee Rivers.

To help showcase these
majestic places and cele-
brate rivers month, the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP) is launching
its inaugural Florida
Rivers Month Photo Con-
test. The contest invites
residents and visitors, ex-
perienced and novice
photographers, to submit
images of favorite Flori-,
da rivers and water
basins.

"Water is the lifeblood of
our state, and celebrating
Florida Rivers Month al-
lows us to recognize how


important our rivers are
to our environment and
economy," said Janet
Llewellyn, director of
DEP's Division of Water
Resource Management.
"By launching the photo
contest we hope to en-
courage the appreciation,
conservation and protec-
tion of these rivers
which define Florida's
landscape."

Color photos will be ac-
cepted through July 31,
2008 and should capture
the environmental rich-
ness, unique landscape,
flora and fauna, human
involvement, recreational
opportunities or simply
the exceptional beauty of
Florida's rivers and sur-
rounding landscapes.
Photographs will be
judged in six geographic
categories with specific
river basins within each
region.

Northwest District:
Ochlockonee-St. Marks
Rivers, Apalachicola-
Chipola Rivers,
Choctawhatchee River
and Bay-St. Andrew Bay,
Pensacola Bay, Perdido

Over the last seven years,
Florida has acquired
more than one million
acres of environmentally-


sensitive land to protect
water quality in rivers,
lakes, estuaries and
streams through Florida
Forever and its predeces-.
sor, P2000. The acreage
includes nearly 130,000
acres of natural flood-
plains and more than
500,000 acres of function-
al wetlands.

Florida is using the best
science to identify and re-
store degraded rivers
based on the first state
law of its kind in the na-
tion. Through stringent
water quality standards,
rigorous environmental
permitting requirements
and a strong commitment
to reuse, the state has
eliminated nearly 300 dis-
charges of industrial and
domestic wastewater into
Florida's rivers in the last
twelve years. In addition,
Florida has invested $3.1
billion since 1999 to pro-
tect the state's rivers by
cleaning up stormwater
pollution and improving
wastewater treatment.

Does it feel like 1972 to you? Do you feel that Jimmy
Carter-gas lines-stagflation-doom and gloom feeling
in the very air? Yep, me too. And while we're wait-
ing on the next Ronald Reagan to come along and
straighten the whole thing out with lower taxes and
trickle-down economics, there's got to be a way to
stretch that dollar just a little bit more. This column
will cover money-saving strategies, couponing, and
smart shopping each week to help you squeak *
through the tough times ahead.

Let's start with the easy stuff. The serious cost-cut-
ter will have already cancelled Netflix subscriptions,
satellite radio, and cut back on eating out and mani-
cures. But have you thought about your health insur-
ance? Give your company a call and see if you can
raise your deductible a little bit more. I raised mine
from $500 to $2,000 and saved $100 a month.

Next, rethink your utilities. I had THREE (yes,
three) phone lines at my house: one for work, one for
faxes, and one for personal calls. I wanted to cut my
phone costs, but I needed the fax line to surf the in-
ternet via dialup. I needed the work number. The
personal number? Not so much. Nobody ever calls
me except my sister, anyway. A little rethinking and
some basic math made it embarrassingly clear that
by turning off the fax line and the personal line, and
signing up with a satellite internet company, that I'd
get high speed internet and save $10 a month, as a
bonus. To handle the fax issue I signed up with efax,
a free online service that assigns you a fax number
and then emails your incoming faxes to you. "That
saved endless paper, toner and irritation at junk fax-
es promising Mexican Cruise vacations for free. Von-
age offers phone service cheaper than Ma Bell at $25
a month, if you already have high-speed internet.

I also have a cell phone with a $20 a month data plan
that I never use. Do you REALLY need to send 200
text messages a week? REALLY? If you have a teen
in your house, you may be paying for their cell ser-
vice, too. It is times like these that drive kids from
mom's pocketbook out into the neighborhood with a
lawn mower. Seriously: you handicap your children
by giving them luxuries, and yes, a cell phone is a
luxury If they simply must have one, then they
should learn to be responsible for at least a part of
the bill. (Money saved, about $40) If you live in town,
and have good service, it may be cheaper to have just
a cell and cancel the landline.

Now to the elephant in the living room: the power
bill. You probably think I'm going to tell you to turn
off your air conditioning. Are you CRAZY? It's 100
degrees outside. I'm happiest at about 73 degrees,
myself. But there's no point in maintaining that tem-
perature when I'm not home. So, when you leave,
turn it up to a more reasonable 78, and your power
bill will thank you. Also, be sure to turn off the
"dry" feature on your dishwasher. That feature uses
almost as much power as your AC. (Money saved,
around $30.) It's also a good idea to call the lower
company and sign ub for their averaging plan: They
figure your electric bill over the entire year, and then
divide it by twelve, and that's your bill every month.
No more of those big $400 August surprises.

COURT FEES INCREASE


The 2008 Legislature did
not raise taxes: it drasti-
cally increased the fees , ..
we will all have to pay in
the Courthouse. We've '.,.
all heard about the Legis-
lature balancing the bud- '
get and some of the im-
pact has been felt in the ;",,'
fees we now charge. '.
Your Dixie County Clerk
of Court, Dana Johnson,
and County Judge, Fred ,
Koberlein, have reviewed -,
the mandated increases. :
"It is unfortunate that ,
the fees will be increased
so drastically, but our
court system can not be : i
allowed to deteriorate. Dana Cannon Johnson,
into a state of dysfunc- Clerk of Court
tion." said County Judge,
Fred Koberlein. "This increase is a state mandate
that all 67 counties must implement. We can not avoid
these charges,", said Clerk of Court, Dana Johnson.

Some of the filing fee increases include: civil filings
from $250 to $295, evictions from $70 to $295, counter
.claims and third party pleadings will pay another
$295, opening an estate from $100 to $115, summary
administration from $200 to $225, issuing a summons
will cost $10 whereas before there was no charge, cer-
tifying public records will increase from $1.50 to
$2.00, sealing or expunging a court file from $37.50 to
$42.00. Some of the court costs include a cost of pros-.
ecution charge of $50 for misdemeanors and $100 for
felonies, public defender application fee increases
from $40 to $50, and the dismissal fee for traffic in-
fractions from $7.50 to $10.00. These are few of the
highlights. 'Although we would like to keep the cost
to the public at a minimum, the State of Florida di-
rects each Clerk to collect these fees and costs and
disburse these funds to the State," said Clerk of

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS


What a mighty God we serve. Today was a wonderful
day in the Lord at Faith Baptist Church. We thank
God for the wonderful rain He has sent to us in the
last few dayrs and for all the other blessings He has
sent our way. He continues to bless us and for that we
are forever thankful.
Bro. Jackie delivered two good messages that God
had laid on his heart. Bro. Kacie led the music in the
absence of Bro. Jim Fisher. In the morning service,
the Crenshaws and the' Brittons did the special music
and in the evening service, Chris and Tommy did one
together, then Tommy did another one alone. All the
songs were great and enjoyed by all.
Be much in prayer for the seniors and their spon-
sors and chaperones as they sail tomorrow from Mia-
mi enroute to Cozumel on a four night/five day
cruise. We pray for their safety on their trip and
their safe return home.
Remember to pray for the ones among us who are
sick, in the hospitals, going for tests and ask God to
keep a shield around them and their families as they
minister to them. We pray that God will give them
peace and heal their bodies if it be His will. Especial-
ly pray for the lost and that God will send someone,
maybe even YOU, to tell them what He has done for
you and that by sharing how' He has blessed you,
these will be saved.
Bible School (VBS) starts at Faith on July 13th go-
ing through the 18th. If you know anyone who is not
attending church and has children, invite them to
join our VBS. Little ones are saved and this leads the
parents in most cases. There are classes for all ages
from 1 to 100, so come out and invite someone to come
with you. It might be just the invitation they're wait-
ing for. For more information or to volunteer to help
with VBS, see Cheryl Lord as she is in charge of this
program.
We pray that you will have a wonderful, safe, happy
and healthy week and if you have been missing Sun-
day School, Sunday night services or Wednesday
night Prayer Meeting, yDu are truly missing a bless-
ing. We hope to see you in the coming week for all of
the services.

Caylan Davis riding her heart out


he Dixie Horse-
man's Association
started its annual Fun
Day and Awards Banquet
with tons of games and
activities on foot and on
horses.

Big John Driggers grilled
the meat and other mem-
bers provided the other
fixings. Without Big
John and Mrs. Jean Drig-
gers and Barbara Snell-
grove working the con-
cession stand, the Horse-
man's Association would
have been lost! It's a


thankless job and we love
and appreciate them!

The Dixie Horseman's
Association would like to
thank everyone who
helped to organize the
Fun Day and Awards
Banquet. So much work
goes into the Association
to help distribute over
$10,000 worth of prizes.
Kids, thank your parents
for getting you to all of
the ropings and game
days!
Ropings are held every
first and third Friday of


the
month at
8:00 and
game
days are
every
third Sat-
urday at
5:30. The
public is
encour-
aged to
come out
and enjoy
these
events with us.
